CITROňN C5: MODERN STYLING AND TECHNOLOGIES
Since launch in early 2008, the saloon and Tourer versions of the CITROňN C5 have together sold in over 400,000 units. CITROňN has given its successful model a style and technology upgrade to lend it even more modernity and personality:

  • The CITROňN C5 now features the Brand’s new chevrons, which reinforce the car’s expression with their enhanced curves. The C5 also gets 17-inch “Egťe” alloy wheels (standard fit on some versions) and a new body colour, “Guaranja” brown. CITROňN C5 Exclusive trim models are available with a new leather/cloth upholstery and new interior design components.

  • To make driving easier, the CITROňN C5 has been fitted with a new MyWay satnav system combined with the Connecting Box, including a jack socket, USB port and a Bluetooth hands-free kit. On the C5 Tourer, the satnav can be hooked up to a reversing camera to make parking manoeuvres easier.

CITROňN is upgrading the C5 and C8 with new styling features consistent with the Brand’s current cues and future ambitions. Both models get extra modernity and elegance, strengthening their personalities while maintaining the assets behind their success.

The CITROňN C5 continues to feature modern, and even exclusive, technologies for the wellbeing, comfort and safety of all passengers, such as CITROňN eTouch and Hydractive III+ suspension, a CITROňN world exclusive.

New CitroŽn C5: appeal, performance, status and quality
With the new C5, CitroŽn establishes a strong position in the mid-high range vehicle segment, where the key qualities are appeal, performance, status and quality. The new C5 combines a strong personality, with dynamic performance, status and quality.
Respecting the design cues of this segment, CitroŽn has developed two cars: a saloon whose flowing lines express style and status and a dynamic looking estate that places the emphasis on emotion without forgetting functional convenience.
With the new C5, CitroŽn satisfies the requirements of executive vehicle buyers in terms of quality and reliability by setting new standards in development, design and industrial production.

Elegant thoroughbred styling
As a saloon or estate, the new C5 stands apart for its distinguished styling and elegant personality. Its dynamic lines and clearly marked waistline give it real on-road presence. Inside the car, a well designed cabin and premium materials contribute to on-board comfort. Passengers benefit from a prestige design that makes this new road car a vehicle of refinement and distinction.

Remarkable dynamic qualities
On the road, the driver enjoys exceptional driving sensations, and the passengers are lapped in comfort. To achieve this, the new C5 offers a choice between two types of suspension: Hydractive 3 Plus suspension or metallic suspension. Both are based on the running gear of the C6 executive saloon.
The Hydractive 3 Plus suspension is aimed at customers keen to take advantage of the Marque's latest developments in technology, comfort and safety.
The metallic suspension is a particularly competitive option. It provides a more direct feel while maintaining the comfort specific to CitroŽn.
These dynamic qualities are combined with a range of three petrol engines and four HDi diesel engines, as well as a full choice of gearboxes.

Exemplary driving pleasure
Driving pleasure takes on a whole new dimension with the new C5. The driving position, which resembles a cockpit, is fully focused on the driver, and features a second-generation fixed-centred controls steering wheel. Clear, concise driving information is displayed on three dials with annular needles, inspired by the aviation world.
Well designed acoustics enable the driver to give the road his/her full attention.

Uncompromising on safety
The vehicle meets the highest standards in both active and passive safety with ESP as standard, a stiff body structure and nine airbags (seven standard and two optional).

Produced in an ISO 9001 and 14001 certified plant
The Rennes plant, with ISO 9001 certification, has extensive experience in the production of high-end vehicles, and particularly with the launch of the C6. The site is also committed to the environment and sustainable development, reflected in its ISO 14001 certification.

Distinctive styling expressing performance and elegance
C5 saloon: sculptural exterior styling
The proportions of the new C5 (4.78m long, 1.86m wide and 1.45m tall) place it at the top end of the large road car segment. Its distinctive styling expresses prestige and performance. The strong character of this saloon is expressed by its sophisticated lines, modern proportions and original body style. Depending on the angle from which it is viewed, it resembles a thoroughbred coupť or elegant saloon. The new C5 stirs the emotions from first glance.
The assertive front end makes a statement of strength, with its large air intakes and long incisive headlamps. The headlamps – positioned on the bonnet with its two pronounced ribs – flank the large chrome chevrons stating CitroŽn's identity. The wide tracks and flush wheels underline the perception of a vehicle that hugs the road.
The profile of the saloon reflects efforts to optimise aerodynamics. The extended roof line underlines the flowing proportions of the body. The large glazed area with a third side window lets the light flood into the cabin. The high waistline and strongly marked wheel arches clearly identify the saloon as a vehicle of status. The 2.82m wheel base suggests a generous cabin.
The strong, distinguished character of the new C5 is also expressed at the rear. The concave rear window identifies it as one of CitroŽn's large road tourers. The signature two-part boomerang lights give the rear-end an assertive look. The generous volumes convey the impression of a car with a strong on-road stance, sitting squarely on its wheels.
